What I did
Jungle, Rio Negro
On a vu le match Brasil Cameroun ambiance jungle brésilienne, on a péché des piranhas et chaser la nuit des petits caymans aligators... magnifique.
Promenade surprenante en jungle suivie d'une baignade très spéciale avec des dauphins roses. le lever et le coucher de soleil étaient splendides et les adieux avec la jungle un peu nostalgique.
Il faut dire aussi que certains Brésiliens sont un peu louches et essayent de nous arnaquer tout le temps, le Cruise jungle était trop cher par rapport à ce qu on aurait pu voire et ce qu'on a payé..
on part maintenant a Salvador puis Lençois.
We are now leaving Manaus, having spent three days on the boat exploring the jungle. Though the majority of the tourists in Manaus now came here for a football game, we just happened to be here during the World Cup and apparently this is a crazy time to be here. There are way too many tourists and it seems to be hard to resist the temptation to scam them.
The last three days we have spent on the boat, going up the Rio Negro river and being surrounded by the jungle. This was truly magnificent- the nature takes your breath away. And since we are still in a way living in the Belgian time zone, we were up very early watching the sunrise and listening to the sounds of the jungle. We started off by visiting a place where the two rivers, Rio Negro and Amazon meet. The color of the waters of these two rivers are different and they don't mix for some kilometers. Probably this is the only place in the world that has it. Unfortunately, the tour wasn't organized that well. This company just wanted to get as much money as possible putting a minimum of effort. We took a walk in the jungle, swam with the dolphins, fished some piranhas. One guide showed us a trick, that if you put a stick into piranha's mouth, it breaks it. Don't even dare put your finger there- it will have no chance.
